Mk3 Starter Button Addition


This does not replace the ignition system, just either adds to or replaces the final turn of the key to start the cars engine with a push button switch instead.

Parts Required

Single Pole Single Throw Relay.

Wire ( amount dependant on where & how your wiring the mod up )

Crimps ( 4x female spade, 1x ring at least, others may be required depending on your fitting method )

Push Switch ( if wanting it to fit on your dash without big mods then a mondeo boot release button & an airbag warning light unit cover can be used to make it look factory fit - ish )


To Fit you need to connect the above parts up like shown in the following diagram.

if your not wanting the key start to function then you need to replace the current feed in C30 pin 4 with the one from the relay & safely make safe & tie up the old connection out of the way

Things You Need To Be Aware Of

The Push Button bypass's the built in safety feature that protects the starter from being operated when the engine is already running ( this feature is built into the ignition barrel & locks out the starter position when used until the key is turned off & then back on again ) so make sure the starter button is in a location where its not going to be easily pressed during normal driving.
